Graduation ceremonies are subject to change and follow updated Government regulations or advice.

We are planning the events under existing COVID-19 guidance.

For the safety of everybody attending and working at our ceremonies, students and guests may be asked to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test, taken within the previous 48hrs.

We have reduced the number of attendees to allow for additional circulation space and extra spacing between seating.

Additional cleaning will be done between ceremonies and hand sanitiser will be available.

Important note

We reserve the right to merge or split ceremonies after you have registered to attend. This will only happen if the number of registered students exceed safety protocols.

We will only change the time of your ceremony, we will not change the day. If a change of time is necessary, we will notify you after the registration period has closed.
